This smaller picnic basket is great as a "Picnic for Two". We also suggest it to be used as a craft tote. There is a solid wood lid which is hinged on the top and two swing handles for carrying. Great for taking your lunch to work everyday. This basket is also the perfect size to keep on the counter to hold all your incoming mail, the lid keeps it concealed until you have time to go through it. The basket is pictured in our honey stain and has the solid brass Peterboro Basket medallion. Measures approx.: 14''L x 9''W x 6''H.
We are the only manufacturer of this "one-of-a-kind" basket design.
Handcrafted in the USA from 100% USA made materials.

This is the third basket I have ordered from Peterboro Basket. I've never been disappointed - all have been given as gifts and I have received rave reviews.
My only comment would be the delivery. Even though I was given a preliminary expected delivery date, I had to call twice on 2 of the orders to report that I had not received the baskets. I understand that extra time is required when there is personalization and that the orders were placed at the end of November/very early December. However, when I called on the 3rd order placed on 12/09/14, it was not in the system and I received it a week later than promised.
The quality of the baskets and the fact that I had planned for extra time made the frustration acceptable. I would not hesitate to place orders again. The baskets are truly beautiful - all 3 were different styles - all beautiful.

Very sturdy lid with fine woodwork. The lid operation isn't pictured; it lifts from one side, not the middle. It's a clever design nonetheless, but I would've appreciated a diagram or picture of the open basket.
The actual basket part looks strong, but there aren't any supporting rods or anything. Not sure how this will affect the longevity of the product, but it will hold up for a long time with careful use.
This can hold plenty of food for two people with a picnic blanket tucked between the two handles. My SO and I enjoy taking this to the park; it looks much better than a backpack and is a bit more romantic.
tl;dr. Good product, should last if taken care of.
